Learn how to apply for intellectual property rights abroad and which international systems can help you do this. WIPO and DPMA are inviting you to a respective seminar in Munich at the end of November.

The WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) and the DPMA (German Patent and Trademark Office) will hold a seminar on international IP protection in Munich on 27 November. Under the title Effective protection of technical inventions, trademarks and designs abroad, experts will explain how you can register intellectual property rights such as patents or trademarks in different countries. The seminar will also explain how international systems such as the Madrid System for the International Registration of Marks, the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), or the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Deposit of Industrial Designs can help you.

In addition, the seminar will present hands-on experiences, show how to use the global information systems for searching for industrial property rights, and explain how to employ the WIPO Alternative Dispute Resolution Procedures (ADR). Several rounds of discussions will give you ample opportunity to raise questions on the topics and exchange views with experts from WIPO and the DPMA as well as other participants.

The event will be held on 27 November from 9:30 to 15:30 at the DPMAforum in Munich. Further information can be found in the seminar programme of WIPO and DPMA. Participation is free of charge, please register in advance.
